I find the whole idea a bit hypocritical, especially when people who "only listen to Christian music" bring up the topic.

So it's not okay to listen to secular music or to avoid secular songs, but it's okay for a Christian band to cover a secular song? Nothing in the song has changed. The lyrics and most of the time music is exactly the same, it's just that a bunch of Christians have chosen to cover the song, so that makes it okay, correct? I'm trying to wrap my mind around this silly mentality. I also suppose this means that your favourite Christian bands listen to secular music, doesn't it?

Oh, and the theme of the song hasn't magically changed it into a Christian song just because a Christian band redid it. It's still exactly the same song it was when the secular band wrote it.

Check the method when I constantly flow,
no joke like the pronto, loud so,
John Doe up in his condo in Toronto,
can hear the way foot comes down,
just to give you the run down,
Krutch be droppin' it, daybreak to sundown,
when the smoke clears,
who you think'll be standin' there?
grippin' four mics,
swingin' the cords up in the air,
like cowboys,
we be rockin' the territory in this rap game,
'n' CHRIST blessed us with the octane,
the same name,
who created the world in seven days,

will change ya life, you'd be amazed,
man, don't trip, we gon' carry on with the function,
Krutch preparin' the power punch 'n'

The things, you say,
your word will never push me away,
the things, you say,...

You're unbelivable,... you're so unbelievable

I just wanna make jams,
to pack the clubs 'n' stadiums,
with people of all types,
while makin' the crowd hype,
I got CHRIST in me, for the life of me,
stand truly thankful for the sites I see,
'n' sparks be ignitin',
the minute we start writin',
GOD placed me in this fightin',
to speak 'n' to enlighten,
and I'm just that type-a, lyrical rhyme
sniper, never a street fighter,
but down for gettin' hyper,
I'm a beat junkie brother, known by the emcee's,
for rippin' thru tracks like epidemic disease,
and shout to J.C. cuz' he reigns supreme,
'n' party people out there know what I mean.

Check this out, check this out,
stepped on the scene, at the age of thirteen,
crystal-clean, kick it like ya never seen,
big expansion, that mmm bopped hanson,
'n' thru off Marylin Manson up in his mansion,
out to rock the globe,
while its still here to rock,
with things that'll make ya drop ya jaw,
run along 'n' lock ya door,
it's the Krutch coalition crowd,
on a mission now,
original, givin' emcee's beat downs,
we bust, with the extreme thrust,
of ten warriors, the notorious,
one triple zero, no joke, we let it flow,
man for real though,
steppin' on sneakers with steel toes.



Nuff said

Somtimes you catch a song somwhere that you dont like but the beat is stuck in your head, so whenever you hear it the lyrics come to you, you hear the beat of it somwhere and ur suddenly reminded of the preverse lyrics from the song, so im looking for more songs that have been cleaned, so when you hear the song you think of different lyrics or of somones playing it really loud you can scream the christian lyrics

nothing againts secular music, its just some of it can be preverse and somthing a christian shouldnt listen too, but i played this song for a friend and he really loved it. id like to have more songs like it so i can play them for my friends and say hey its the beat that you like the guitar riffs the lyrics dont matter. introduce them to christian music get them on the scene maybe listening to more.

I'm going to assumed that is what you posted in the thread before; a song that had changed lyrics. I'm also going to guess this wasn't by a known band because they would most likely be sued to no return. I've never really heard of a band being allowed to take someone elses music and change just a few parts of the song to make it a Christian song. Most artists would rather set themselves on fire than have their work "Christianized"

EMF - Unbelievable

You burden me with your questions
You'd have me tell no lies
You're always asking what it's all about
But don't listen to my replies
You say to me I don't talk enough
But when I do I'm a fool
These times I've spent, I've realized
I'm going to shoot through
And leave you

The things, you say
Your purple prose just gives you away
The things, you say
You're unbelievable

You burden me with your problems
By telling me more than mine
I'm always so concerned
With the way you say
You've always go to stop
To think of us being one
Is more than I ever know
But this time, I realize
I'm going to shoot through
And leave you

Seemingly lastless, don't mean
You can ask us
Pushing down the relative
Bringing out your higher self
Think of the fine times
Pushing down the better few
Instead of bringing out the clues
To what the world and everything anger to
Brace yourself with the grace of ease
I know this world ain't what it seems.

What the [wash my mouth][wash my mouth][wash my mouth][wash my mouth] was that
It's unbelievable

There was a rash of this in the 90s. Some examples were Geoff Moore covering "I'm Free", Holy Soldier doing "Gimme Shelter, to name a couple. None of the lyrics were changed, and it put a new spin on the song, so to speak; so when hearing these songs I was reminded of Christian things rather than the original intent of these songs.

I think this whole issue is going to get a lot bigger in church discussions with Stryper's new album...

Apologetix does this with many many songs... but I always assume they have the rights to make their parodies....
